Writers on the Edge series presents two area poets today

February 17, 2014

Stephens College is hosting a conversation with two poets this afternoon.

Melissa Range, whose 2010 poetry collection Horse and Rider won the 2010 Walt McDonald Prize in Poetry, and Austin Segrest, who has been published in a number of literary journals and publications, will speak at 4:30 p.m. in the Penthouse at Hugh Stephens Library. The event, part of the Writers on the Edge series, is free and open to the public.

Range’s poems have appeared in 32 Poems, The Georgia Review, The Hudson Review, Image, New England Review, The Paris Review, and other journals. She is the recipient of a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award, a “Discovery”/The Nation Prize, and fellowships from the American Antiquarian Society, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and the Sewanee Writers’ Conference. Originally from East Tennessee, she is finishing up her Ph.D. in English at the University of Missouri.

Segrest is finishing his Ph.D. in poetry at Mizzou. His poems have been published in The Yale Review, New England Review, Shenandoah, Ploughshares and Threepenny Review, and are forthcoming in Harvard Review and Western Humanities.
